Sdg-Focused Project-Based Learning In Engineering Design Courses Through Diversity and Inclusion Interventions
This paper describes the framework of ongoing interventions on diversity and inclusion in an engineering classroom though Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) focused team projects. Some available literature on classroom diversity and its effect on educational outcomes is discussed. SDG-focused project-based learning and students design work products are presented. Level of diversity in students’ teams and its possible effect on team psychology and learning is discussed.
